Torpedo is an assertive American IPA deep reddish-gold in color, with a smooth and bready malt presence and over-the-top hop aromas. The beer has a solid bitterness and a massive hop flavor, yet remains easy drinking with a pleasant dry finish.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 14, 2009
0.35 L bottle from Systembolaget, Charlottenberg. A slightly hazed, orange-amber beer with a two-finger, foamy and airy, white head. Superhoppy aroma, zesty citrus, tropical and pine. Bold hop bitter taste as well, with grapefruit and oranges in the lead. A caramelly malt flavor is there to balance. Thick, oily mouthfeel. Well-bodied. Massive hop bitterness in a lasting finish. Not overdone, a great IPA with great drinkability.

BrewingFan (251) - Texas, USA - NOV 13, 2009
Strong floral, earthy hops on the nose. Nice deep copper that heads up real nice and maintains it for a while. Palate actually comes across quite thin, but it is knocked out of the way by the hops and bitterness. Finish leaves a pucker effect. Its not a double/imperial, it is exactly what it says, a little extra hop and bitterness in a thinner IPA.

jb (2832) - Rochester, New York, USA - NOV 13, 2009
Slight haze, copper, thick burnt orange tinged head. Very hoppy aroma, bouquet is mostly pine, a bit of grapefruit and sugar daddy. Mouth feel is clean, plenty of bitterness and hops in this. The start is nice and fades into hoppy oblivion.

DeadGirl (478) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 13, 2009
Straight from the 12oz. bottle, not at Bryant Park like my neighbor, Pwn3d, but poolside while listening to B Spears (on repeat): Characteristically fruity (ripe apricots, dried mango, grapefruit, peaches...) and some earthy/grassy flavors too. Drinkability: Multi-dimensional, but also may be forgettable. Rebuy: Probably. #194 on 13112009, DG.

Haslinger (907) - The World of Beer, Texas, USA - NOV 13, 2009
12 ounce bottle. Nice green bottle. Great hops aroma and taste. A nice slightly bitter aftertaste. VEry well balanced. Tastes like a beefed up SN Pale Ale. Solid would buy again

cmillward (497) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 11, 2009
Bottle. Pours a coppery gold with a large off-white head with nice lacing. Nose is pine and citrus hops, a little tropical fruit over some caramel and bready malts. Orange, peach hops, sweet malts, bitter finish with a slightly sweet aftertaste. Medium/heavy mouthfeel.

Pwn3d (1962) - Manhattan, New York, USA - NOV 9, 2009
Picked up a six pack at Bryant Park Deli on 38th and 6th. Reasonably priced, only 1 buck more than Bud Light... which makes no sense to me. Assertive but not overly intense. Deep pine and oily hops. Not a bunch of complex flavors floating around, however still flavorful.

Chapel (468) - Levittown, New York, USA - NOV 8, 2009
Pour is intensely copper. There is some pine and bitterness all around. Lasts on the tongue for quite a bit. Pretty much a textbook IPA.

Lawsonciv (29) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 8, 2009
Big, creamy, off-white head. Aroma of pine and citrus. Pours an amber-brown color. Really nice mouthfeel with some creaminess. Good amount of hoppy flavor. A very good IPA.

thewolf (11931) - Kolding, DENMARK - NOV 7, 2009
Bottle, bought @ Systembolaget, Hyltebruk.
Pours brownish amber with a big, creamy, off-white head. Aroma has lots of pine on top of a fine caramel profile. Grapefruit, citrus and light apricot. Highish carbonation, really lovely dry mouthfeel with some lovely creaminess. Flavour is a lovely hoppy beer. Pine, grapefruit on top of a very good malty caramel base. This is really a super well-balanced IPA.
